Just fyi but I registered for Preview I a few days ago for "waitlist" and they got back to me two days later in the early am saying they found a spot for me. Plus I was told you can always switch your registration if you change your mind. Just wanted to put that out there in case anyone else wanted to go to Preview I.

I randomly emailed the contact people at some of the groups I was interested in (Headnotes, Outlaws, OWLS) and people have been amazing about emailing me and offering to talk on the phone. If there's a group you think you want to join, google it and find the contact person and email him/her. (It did take a while to get responses from some people, but once I did, they were super friendly and helpful!)

Yea, I was just kidding :) someone has already pm'd me, and I've been in contact with admissions, so I'm good! Everyone has been very helpful and awesome in general.

I need to play hockey in law school. Alas, I haven't played hockey since I was 11ish, and haven't really skated since.

I was going pro before I hung up the skates, I tell you.

Woo need based aid posted! It says for 2012/2013 but I assume if your financial situation doesn't change it shouldn't change much right? If so I now have close to $55,000 from Michigan!!!

Oh gosh, not Kony.

I'm also really scared about the loan situation but then again I hope that one day the rewards will outweigh the risk I'm taking now. (and I don't mean monetary rewards as those are a very dismal possibility)

I remember someone sending me a YouTube video of MLaw students plotting different ways to kick undergrads out of their library. My guess is that the library is open to the public or at least the university in general.

If I remember correctly from my visit...the library is only open to law students (you have to walk past a gate with a student sitting behind a desk) but the reading room in the legal research building is a 50/50 split between law students and undergrads/public (except during finals, when it's either 80/20(?) or restricted to law students only)

It's hard to say how strict these rules are because we were clearly part of a tour group
